Snappy ODROID-C1 image

Unread postby longsleep » Mon Jun 15, 2015 2:27 am

Hi,

over the last weekends i worked on creating an Snappy image for
ODROID-C1. I now have a build which is ready for wider testing. Download
the image from:

https://www.stdin.xyz/downloads/snappy/odroidc/

Update 20150615 (v0.3 - ubuntu-core 3)
- Ubuntu Core updated to version 3
- Fixed Docker (by fixing Kernel configuration)

Update 20150729 (v0.4 - ubuntu-core 4)
- Ubuntu Core updated to version 4
- Kernel was updated to 3.10.80
- U-Boot is now using uboot.env and uEnv.txt instead of boot.ini to support the latest changes to Snappy update and rollback
- uEnv.txt now supports settings (similar to boot.ini)
- HDMI and video engine are now disabled by default to make the full 1GB RAM available to Snappy

Update 20150919 (v0.5 - ubuntu-core 5)
- Ubuntu Core updated to version 5
- Added Linux firmware files which were missing

The images contain Ubuntu 15.04 Snappy Core from the stable channel and include webdm with ssh access as ubuntu/ubuntu enabled (developer mode).

Read the full story at
https://www.stdin.xyz/2015/06/14/snappy ... odroid-c1/
including information how to rebuild this image yourself and the links
to patched Kernel and U-Boot.

Let me know what you think, and try it out on your ODROID-C1.

Cheers
Simon

i just pushed version 0.3 of the ODROID-C1 Snappy image

Download: https://www.stdin.xyz/downloads/snappy/odroidc/

Changes:
- Fixed Docker (by fixing Kernel configuration)

Fixing Docker was the last item on the TODO list so i consider 0.3 a
solid release without any major issues left.

You have to flash and start from scratch. There is no upgrade path from normal deb packages Ubuntu to snappy Ubuntu.

Great work, I'd happily give a try on this. A question, however; how good in performance is this release compared to HK's 14.04 one?
I'm quite happy on 14.04 except for poor video performance, I admit I did not investigate the issue but really can't see an youtube's video without lags and breaks, even trying different browsers.

What "performance" are you referring to. There should not be any difference in performance as the Kernel is using the same patches provided by Hardkernel.

Note this Snappy Ubuntu Core. This is also only available Snappy Ubuntu variant as of now. To be clear - there is no desktop in Core.

See http://askubuntu.com/questions/605066/w ... buntu-core for details.

I just pushed version 20150729 0.4 of the ODROIDC Snappy image.

Download: https://www.stdin.xyz/downloads/snappy/odroidc/

Changes:
- Ubuntu Core updated to version 4
- Kernel was updated to 3.10.80
- U-Boot is now using uboot.env and uEnv.txt instead of boot.ini to support the latest changes to Snappy update and rollback
- uEnv.txt now supports settings (similar to boot.ini)
- HDMI and video engine are now disabled by default to make the full 1GB RAM available to Snappy


Due to the changes in Ubuntu Snappy (uboot.env) it is required to Flash the new image. This is recommended in all cases, as the previous Snappy Version could cause FAT corruption when updating. See https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/snapp ... 00963.html and https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/snapp ... 00968.html for details and background information.

I just pushed version 20150919 0.5 of the ODROIDC Snappy image.

Download: https://www.stdin.xyz/downloads/snappy/odroidc/

Changes:
- Ubuntu Core updated to version 5
- Added Linux firmware files which were missing


If you need the firmware files for example to use USB Wifi or similar, you will have to flash the new image. If you are fine without firmware, a normal
Code: Select all
sudo snappy update
is sufficient to upgrade to Ubuntu Core 5.

Pls. suggest which OS-image is better (performance) for doing face-recognition using OpenCV, this one or the official one?

Thanks

I doubt there is any relevant difference in performance. Use whatever variant of Linux you want and supports the software you want to use best.

Seems like i should add a link to https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/snappy/guides/ in the README. You will need the snappy-tools to build the actual image. See the Getting Started section in the Ubuntu Snappy developer guide.

I got my C1+ two days ago and I already tried a few distros. Ubuntu Snappy Core looks interesting for new, clean projects, servers etc, but it doesn't look like a base for desktop or development environment, simply because most software distributed as DEBs is not available yet. There's little guidance besides basic official documentation or maybe I'm asking wrong questions in Google. Any suggestions on howtos or guides about Snappy? And is it true 16.04 is gonna be based on snaps, will they port old packages?

Coming back to this release, I tried getting my HDMI output to work, and even after enabling it the screen was black all the time, I didn't even know if it booted correctly. Had to try ping and SSH to get in. After one more reboot and some tinkering with it the console on HDMI finally appeared... until next reboot :P That was weird.
